a bit about the obama administration's secret program of targeted killing of suspected terrorists. a small number of those targeted and killed have been american citizens while some unconfirmed number of those killed in yelm, pakistan and elsewhere have been innocent civilians, mothers, children, young and old men in the wrong place at the wrong time. they have implement add rigorous screening process at the white house deciding who ends up on the list. the president approaches the program with solemnity and care and the policy has been efficient and effective in decimating al qaeda and other terrorist groups. it's been said, quote, the enemy is really, really struggling. these atakes have produced the broadest, deepest, and most rapid reduction in al qaeda senior leadership that we've seen in several years. my partner michael isikoff outfound a memo that outlines why they believe they have the legal thoort authority to use force. at thursday's confirmation hearings for his nomination to head up the cia, white house counterterrorism director raised questions about the memo and the

"panic 2012, the sublime and terrifying inside story of obama's final campaign ♪ ♪ barbara siegel, also washington correspondent for the middle east website al monitor.com. great to have you all here. >> thank you. >> so i am -- well, where to start? i think the lessons unlearned to me was the most troubling. it seemed to me we had a moment in 2008 particularly in which president obama articulated this kind of alternative foreign policy vision and did so quite forthrightly. for instance, negotiations with iran and ahmadinejad. and somehow four years later, we've moved backwards, right? the old -- i guess as we've gotten further away from the debacle of iraq, as that's more remote in people's memory, there's more and more the sense of iraq ended up okay and you saw this -- i thought it was so interesting, it was the relitigation of the surge. because that in some ways is this key narrative plot point that somehow redeem tess entire war. and so you saw, for instance, john mccain, incredibly invested in redeeming the surge. check this out and then i want to hear your reaction to it. take a

. heidi moore of the guardian. this week we got to see the state of the union from president barack obama touching on a whole range of domestic issues as well as turning to some of the foreign policy that -- items on his agenda. i thought the way that he dealt with the difference between his domestic policy call for gun violence and his -- his call on immigration was really, really notable. particularly because those are the two things in the administration now. this was the rallying moment of the state of the union was this very dramatic crescendo around gun violence when he talked about the victims of some of the mass shootings. >> senators of both parties are working together on tough new laws to prevent anyone from buying guns for resale to criminals. each of these proposals deserve as vote in congress. one of those we lost was a young girl named nadia pendleton. he was 15 years old. she loved figure newtons and lip gloss. she was a majorette. she was so good to her friends that they all thought they were her best friend. just three weeks ago she was here in washington with her classm

. there was a big stink made about the white house press corps story or nonstory. president obama played golf with tiger woods in florida last weekend. the white house press corps was denied access to this moment in the president's second term. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry, who's the president of the white house correspondents association released a statement to politico that underscored the press corps's complaint. i can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and tv have expressed extreme frustration to me about having no access to the president of the united states this entire weekend. there is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today, transparency. they complained about the president being a manipulator of the press and guilty of shutting them out. with more technology and fewer resources the many media companies, the balance of power between the white house and the press has tipds unmistakably toward the government. it's a dangerous development that they have exploited cleverly and ruthlessly. it seems to me

. also, the number of deportations has increased every year since president obama took office. in obama's first year of office, he deported almost 390,000 and topped more than 400,000 deportations for the first time last year. everyone in the immigration debate seems to take for granted that the notion of securing the border is a laudable goal, but the enforcement first mentality has a host of consequences not to mention human costs. it ignores so much about the realities of migration in the 21st century. joining us on the table is elisio medina and aaron pena, a former member of the texas house of representatives, foupder of the hispanic republican conference of texas, now senior vice president of firm crosswinds communications. aaron, i want to start with you because you are from the border. how has the border changed during the period that you've been there previous from the ramp up of enforcement that we've seen now, many more border agents, fencing, we have put a lot more resources into making that as impermeable to people we don't want to cross as possible. >> let me first tell yo

money to care for themselves or their own families. you know what president obama said in that clip is right on. it's up acceptable. >> on the one end, i agree with you, they're invis only in the reality of who they are. but hyper v e er visable in who are. >> mamie comes in and sells everything from pancakes to anything -- >> right. >> any household items right. it was about this idea that mamie didn't need a contract, fair pay or time off because she was attached through this familiar through which she worked through a naturalized process. all of that made up the work of who the women of work were in these house holds but we also have to realize that women were comeconomi complicit in that. it becomes possible because someone is there to clean the house and take care of the kids. and those are just other women who are more vulnerable. >> that's right. just to say, we're in the middle of a major demographic shift. so more and more people are going to need support from care workers, we're a rapidly aging nation. every eight seconds someone is turning 65 in our country. we're living

with who left the u.s. military because they converted and were treated differently. >> obama administration has doubled the no-fly list we should note. this came from an ap report. to about 21,000 names. secret lists of suspected terrorist whose are banned from flying to or within the united states. the flood of new names began after the failed christmas 2009 bombing of a detroit-bound jetliner. the government lowered the standard for putting people on the list. james, we're talking about what's outrageous about this. i can absolutely 1,000% understand that exact reasoning. you think how the heck did we let this guy get on a plane and so people say let's err on the side of caution, let's err on making the list bigger than smaller and the worst that happens some people get deprived of their ability to fly. what's wrong with that logic? >> it's not erring on the side of caution this is err on the scale of fear. we're into like five digits. this is something that's happening with the drug war, something that's happening with no-fly lists, something happening with kill lists and
